. following the consequences of the drought last year, the president directed us to create a drought task force, made up of all federal agencies, to try to mitigate the impacts and effects of drought. that led us to begin thinking at usda about steps we can take to help producers during a difficult time. we took a series of steps to try to mitigate the consequences. we opened up crp land, and changed premium payments, things of that nation -- that nature. it also got us thinking -- were there other steps, other things we should be doing, to provide help and assistance? it occurred to us perhaps we should be focused more acutely on the need to encourage multi- cropping through the united states, in order for us to do a better job of conservation, to create biomass that could be a revenue source, and to potentially allow us to conserve precious water resources, which would in turn allow us to get through these drought circumstances in a more favorable circumstance. we have begun a process of looking at ways in which we could provide assistance. you will be fortunate to hear from a fellow by

. what have we learned about this? the first thing we are learning is that, who are the kids that use this? they are not just any low-income kids. they tend to be the kids performing the worst in the traditional public schools. it looks like that is a little bit of an argument in favor of mix match. maybe some are doing poorly and parents were trying to find alternative options for them. whether or not they are succeeding is an open question. the second thing we have learned about this is kids who are participating in the voucher program are do we know better than average then the kids that would have done had they stayed in the public-school to the extent we are able to tell. there are to the statistics involved in that. more to be that i would really like. my professional judgment says they are doing no better or worse than average than they would have done on the public schools. it can interpret that positively or negatively. people who interpret that as negatively say if they are not doing any better, when are we taking money away from public schools to give it to private schools
and endanger u.s. security. as the government accountability office revealed scathing report from fiscal year 2007 through 20121, the justice department wasted $11 $11.4 million flying department executives around the country on non-mission using the gulf stream jets. they had other dire warnings from the cabinet. >> i don't think we can maintain the same level of security. >> whether it's press related i don't know but there are teachers getng pink slips now. >> the claims are under scrutiny with the last one yesterday from education secretary arnie duncan getting four pinocchios from the "washington post." because the teachers in west virginia did not lose their jobs from sequester. >> some of the things are not true. >> white house aides seem more concerned about the accuracy of journalist bob woodward, but his claim the president rewriting history to replace sequester by tax revenue and spending cut through sharp rebuke from white house aide sperling who declared journalists would regret reporting that. though officials today insisted that was not a threat. noting sperling is trying to ma
george bush, you cannot used enhanced interrogation. >>brian: that is not what america does. >>steve: exactly right. this administration, we found out through a 15-page white paper that has been released -- nbc published it -- this administration and our government, rather than water board people, we kill them. the hypocrisy is amazing. when you take a look at how our president was talking a couple of years ago regarding enhanced interrogation techniques, in favor now of just killing them, it's stunning. watch. >> under my administration, the united states does not torture. my administration is going to operate in a way that leaves no doubt that we do not torture and that we abide by the geneva conventions. water boarding is torture. it's contrary to america's traditions. it's contrary to our ideals. that's not who we are. that's not how we operate. and anybody who actually read about and understands the practice of water boarding would say that that is torture. and that's not something we do. >>gretchen: it boils down to the fact that many people believed that one of the reasons thi
as a u.s. senator from massachusetts. mr. president, i am proud to join my colleagues today in support of the violence against women act of 2013. i do so not just as a senator but as a mother of two daughters. this critical legislation has been held up for far too long, and it's past time for reauthorization. we have a serious responsibility to ensure that women and families are protected. the rates of violence and abuse in our country are astounding and totally unacceptable. according to a 2010c.d.c. study, domestic violence affects more than 12 million people each year. across the united states, 15 1/2 million children lives in homes in which domestic violence has occurred. and in my home state of north carolina alone, 73 women and children are killed on average every year because of domestic violence. let me say that number one more time. 73 women and children are killed every year due to domestic violence. these are alarming statistics, and we must act now to address them. since 1994, vawa programs, and in particular the stop program, that provides grants for services, training, of
complex issue, because of the definition of taxes, penalties and related issues. >> yeah, i think using the term subsidy by its nature, it makes people nervous. subsidy seems have sort of a connotation use in recent years of something untoward. i guess the way i would look at it, i hear your question as a bit of a philosophical question, and less of a nuts and bolts question. i think philosophically, there is fairly broad agreement that you subsidize things that have a social benefit. that they have a benefit that goes beyond the individual and it's not decision reflected in the marketplace. and so i think that you have to look at it that way, if something is not being valued that would make, you know, society better, then you have to come up with some way of evaluating it. whether tax is one way of doing that. i think as far as a market mechanism, it is the way we have tended to look at subsidy as sort of the lubricant to allow these new technologies to find their footing in the marketplace. they do, without a doubt. we have our technology curve and i can show you the map of all of our
mistreatment, the employer can decide to use e-verify against the worker. when employers can easily abuse some workers of all american workplace suffer. e-verify employers routinely violate the program rules, and that hurts workers but the only way a worker knows that he has in e-verify period is if an employer tells them. e-verify is a program that space on agreement between the employer and the government. and workers are really just stuck on the sidelines, even though they have the most to lose from an era. for instance, 42% workers say that they are not notified by the employer of an e-verify error. and if a worker doesn't know that an error exist, and no way to correct it. is vital important that the worker know about errors in the records because errors can lead to workers getting fired, through a final nonconfirmation but because the likelihood of your citizens is at risk even seemingly small error rates really matter. using uscis own statistics, only 50,000 is workers experience and be verify air lest you. that's with 93% of employers not using the program. outdated examples of e-verif

the u.s. patent office issued patent number 46,454. i will give you a pop quiz. it was simply labeled john deere plow. but the implement sketched out on the page could just as easily been labeled, as some historians have named it, one of the most important inventions in american history. they called it the plow that broke the plains, and it did. by replacing cast-iron with smooth steel, john deere's innovation opened up huge new swaths of land for cultivation. it made it possible for towns like aberdeen south dakota my hometown to exist. before it killing and maker took a grown man a full 24 hours. after it, it took as little as five. and every pile of soil overturned upended another assumption about what the land could produce. that, to my mind, has been the story, not just of agricultural success, but of national success. and, indeed, of global progress. this kind of game changing innovation has enabled us to leap ahead, to break the points, to increase harvest, and to frankly, feed the whole world. sometimes innovations come from the most advanced science, other times they
